Microsoft, Qualcomm make phone deal

Microsoft and Qualcomm reached a deal that will combine the Windows Mobile OS with Qualcomm's mobile-phone chips. The move looks to help Microsoft increase its share in the wireless phone market since Qualcomm dominates in the CDMA chip business. Windows Mobile integration with Qualcomm chipsets will assist mobile-phone makers in their design process of smart phones. Microsoft and Qualcomm are fully integrating and testing support for the Windows Mobile operating system on Qualcomm's Convergence Platform 7XXX-series MSM chipsets. Smart phones leveraging MSM solutions with Windows Mobile are forecasted to be available in 2007.
